Traditional Meets Contemporary at Ansgana Velavaru

Posted on

Located in the centre of it’s own lagoon in the South Nilhandhe Atoll, Angsana Velavaru is just 40 minutes by seaplane from Male and has an incredible amount to offer. The island boasts some of the most impressive white sand beaches in the Maldives as well as a spectacular house reef with 30 amazing dive spots.

At Tropic Breeze we love that the resort features a real mixture of traditional Maldivian architecture with a modern twist that gives the island a character all of its own. Beachfront Villas, dotted along the palm fringed sands, are bright and colourful with thatched roofs while the InOcean Villas, set over the lagoon, are much more contemporary in style boasting clean lines and glass walls.

Beachfront and InOcean Villas

Stays at Angsana Velavaru can be enjoyed either on the beach, tucked away amongst the lush tropical gardens, or over the water in the unique InOcean villas.

Beachfront Villas range in size up to three bedrooms, which we find makes them perfect for families or larger groups. Many have their own pool and all are just steps away from the edge of the crystal clear lagoon. They also offer the convenience of having the island’s facilities and extensive activities close at hand during your stay. 

InOcean Villas are located on their own private jetty and are reached by a boat from the main island which operates throughout the day. Spacious and impressive, they also have direct access to the house reef sitting below. This makes them the perfect choice for guests wishing to enjoy the island’s marine life straight from their deck. 

Dining with a View

Angsana Velavaru offers a range of dining options giving guests the opportunity to enjoy meals in a variety of tropical locations during their stay.

Kaani is a casual beachfront restaurant serving international cuisine and themed buffets, while open-air Funa serves Pan-Asian cuisine from it’s unique position at the end of the jetty. The laid back Kuredi Bar offers light bites throughout the day. Azzurro is located within the InOcean Villa cluster and serves breakfast daily as well as Mediterranean influenced dishes for lunch and dinner, exclusively for InOcean Villas guests or those on the premium all inclusive plan.

Guests can choose to make their stay that little bit more memorable by enjoying one of the special dining experiences available at the resort. Options include a private meal under the stars, a sunset rooftop barbecue on your own terrace or even an afternoon floating on the lagoon complete with a Bento menu and champagne.  

Endless Activities

One of the highlights of Angsana Velavaru is its 101 activities available on land and in the water. Families can choose this as their holiday destination safe in the knowledge that there will be something to keep even those with the itchiest feet occupied during their stay.

The island boasts an impressive range of watersports, with all non-motorised activities included with the All Inclusive package. Various motorised watersports are also available at a local charge with qualified instructors on hand for those wishing to try something new. There are complimentary daily reef snorkelling trips as well as the opportunity to learn about the marine environment through coral planting, marine talks and dedicated reef clean-ups. Back on dry land the island features a stunning infinity pool, a football pitch, volleyball courts, a children’s club offering a mixture of fun and educational activities and a luxurious spa.

For something a little different visit the Starlight Cinema on the Beach, test your vocal chords at the weekly karaoke night at Kuredhi Bar or take a tour of a local island to gain a real insight into Maldivian island life.

Alternatively, just sit back and relax. You are on holiday after all!
